good to go

Austin American-Statesman - - SPORTS -

Who­ever’s be­hind cen­ter for the Nit­tany Lions will lean heav­ily on se­nior RB Evan Roys­ter, a first-team All-Big Ten pick last sea­son, when he ran for 1,169 yards and six TDs. Roys­ter needs to gain only 481 yards this fall to sur­pass Curt Warner (3,398 yards) as Penn State’s all-time lead­ing rusher.

On de­fense, Penn State lost all three of its start­ing lineback­ers in 2009 — Sean Lee, Na­vorro Bow­man and Josh Hull — to the NFL, but coaches re­main con­fi­dent in the unit. From 2004-09, Penn State and Ohio State were the only two teams to rank in the top five na­tion­ally in rush­ing de­fense, scor­ing de­fense and to­tal de­fense.
